Port Orchard, Washington is just 13 miles due west of Seattle, but its small-town atmosphere, rustic origins as a 19th-century mill town, and beautiful waterfront location on the Kitsap Peninsula make it feel far from the big city. Book Port Orchard hotels and spend your days exploring the marina, waterfront parks, and historic downtown. You can dine on the freshest seafood while spying enormous ships and submarines passing by on their way to the nearby Naval Shipyards.
Make the approximately 50-mile drive from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Port Orchard easy by booking a shared-ride van shuttle that serves the Kitsap Peninsula or by arranging a rental car through one of more than a dozen companies based at the airport. You can also use public transportation and combine Sound Transit light rail, Metro Transit bus, Washington State Ferries, and Kitsap Transit bus services. Such a journey might also include a ride on the foot ferry that connects the city of Bremerton with Port Orchard. This scenic ferry trip is a fun attraction for tourists and a convenient way to cross the strait. With Port Orchard, WA car rentals you can drive to Olympic National Park or local ski resorts. Washington State Ferries will carry you (and your rental car) to Seattle, where you can see the Space Needle, Experience Music Project Museum, and Woodland Park Zoo. If you want more time to explore or perhaps to catch a sporting event at Key Arena, find cheap hotels in Seattle and spend a night or more there. Back in Port Orchard, stroll along Bay Street with its boutiques, antique stores, bars, and cafes. Stop in at the Sidney Art Gallery and Sidney Museum, which share the town's circa-1908 Masonic Hall.
